Go Dau Ho (new)

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A7/17 established a new camp at Go Dau Ha, which was a market town on the Cambodian border, just off the main highway from Saigon to Tay Ninh. A 5th SFGA TDY team had established a camp there in 1964, but that camp had closed, due to a shoot-out between the LLDB and the USASF. It had been turned over to the ARVN and later overrun. Go Dau Ho was located in Hieu Thien District, Tay Ninh Province. This camp closed o/a 03/01/67. What was the disposition of the assets?
